Revealing the soul of its mechanism through the transparency of its sapphire case, the new Vanguard™ skeleton sapphire showcases its movement to the fullest. Innovation and expertise coupled with Haute Horlogerie traditions has enabled Franck Muller® to design this one-of-a-kind timepiece, achieving an unprecedented achievement.
Manufacturing sapphire watchcase of this kind requires a high degree of hand-finishing, high expertise and a unique savoir-faire. The case, bezel and back of this timepiece are milled from a single block of sapphire. It takes two months to machine the case and then two more to accomplish the polishing.
Taking a new direction with its minimalist style, the Vanguard skeleton sapphire offers a full visual access to its in-house manufactured movement.
